Dir. Eric Mitchell (1980).
Complete with cameos by Jackie Curtis and Taylor Mead, Eric Mitchell’s first 16mm feature transposes Sunset Boulevard to the Warhol Factory. Patti Astor embodies a washed-up Edie Sedgwick-type superstar with convincing self-absorption; Mitchell plays a hustler who installs himself in her life; the robotic courtship dance he uses to get next to her at the Mudd Club is hilarious avant-punk choreography.
